We have been lucky enough to have received several more awards for our display homes in regional Victoria over the past few months. This success follows on from earlier wins this year.

The Master Builders Association awarded the Orlando 28 on display in Huntly (Bendigo) with the title of best display home between $200,000- $300,000, at their annual celebration of Regional North West building excellence. The MBA’s judging panel were extremely impressed with the spacious four bedroom, two bathroom Freedom by Metricon home.

Metricon’s Regional Manager Tania Tonks said, “The Orlando 28 is a perfect choice for customers seeking a mid-size family home that makes best use of liveable space on a thinner block.” You can visit the Orlando 28 at Viewpoint Estate, 5 Bilitho Street, Huntly VIC 3550 or watch the video walk through below.

The Davenport 30 is a large single-storey, four bedroom home that is perfect for large blocks. The Glendale 34 is a double-storey, four bedroom home that also features a large open plan living area, front sitting room, study and an upstairs leisure room. Both of these magnificent homes are on display at Shannon Waters Estate, Shannon Boulevard, Bairnsdale, VIC 3875. You can also watch a video walkthrough of the Davenport 30 below.

Last month, the Housing Industry Association awarded the Merricks 37, which is on display in Mt Duneed (Geelong), with the prestigious award of best display home in the $300,000-$350,000 category at their annual celebration of Regional building excellence. This fantastic home impressed the judges with its great use of liveable space on just a 14-metre wide block with the judges commenting on how the home offers features often only seen in significantly larger homes.

Regional Victoria General Manager, Phil Barrett, said of the home design, “Winning this award is a huge achievement and helps drive us forward to continue to deliver homes that Australian families will love to live in.” You can visit this award winning display home at Armstrong Estate, Armstrong Boulevard, Mt Duneed VIC 3217.

Meanwhile, the Merricks 38 at Strathfieldsaye (Bendigo) won the award of best display home in the $350,000-$400,000 category at the Housing Industry Association’s regional building excellence awards in Western Victoria.

“Winning this award is a credit to both the display, design and Bendigo build team, and lets us reflect on how proud we are of the outstanding homes that we design and create time and time again.  These awards are a great reflection on the high level of quality design and professionalism being offered to Metricon customers”, said Barrett.
